Silverfish are small, wingless insects that are known for their silvery-blue color and their ability to move quickly across surfaces. They are commonly found in dark and damp areas of a home, such as basements, bathrooms, and kitchens. While silverfish do not pose a threat to humans, they can damage household items such as books, wallpaper, and clothing.
The way we control for silverfish is by first conducting a thorough inspection of the home to determine the extent of the infestation and identify areas where silverfish are likely to be found. Once the infested areas have been identified, we use a variety of methods to control the silverfish population. This may include applying insecticides, using traps or using natural remedies such as diatomaceous earth.
To prevent future infestations of silverfish, we may recommend sealing cracks and crevices in your home or business, reducing moisture levels, and removing sources of food for silverfish such as crumbs and other debris. We will also schedule follow-up visits to ensure that the silverfish population has been effectively controlled and to make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan.
It's important to note that silverfish control is an ongoing process, and homeowners should take steps to prevent future infestations by maintaining a clean and dry home environment. We highly recommend regular cleaning, sealing cracks and crevices, and reducing moisture levels to help to keep silverfish at bay.
